When we sleep, our bodies take time to heal and regenerate themselves and your skin is no exception. While beauty rest may seem like a cute phrase, it truly is the real deal.
Your nighttime skincare routine is important because it’s going to deliver the ingredients and nutrients to your skin that it needs to repair in your sleep. Thankfully, your nighttime routine only needs to consist of three easy to use steps!
Wash The Day Off
Did you know that throughout the day, the average person touches their face at least 16 times per hour?! When you consider other factors like makeup, pollution, and free radicals, you’ll understand why washing your face before bed is such a vital step. When you clean your face, anti-aging products are able to penetrate deeper when you’re not wearing makeup while you sleep and the skin can breathe.
Not all cleansers will help your skin before bed the way an oil-based cleanser will. Unlike soap or foam cleansers, oil works like a magnet to attract all the makeup, pollution, and debris in your pores. Oils are also able to stabilize anti-aging ingredients better so while you wash, you’re nourishing your skin with important anti-aging oils like lavender and peppermint. You will notice a difference in the texture of your skin right after your first use!
Fragile Skin First!
Not all the skin on your face is created equally. While some parts of your face have thicker skin, some areas like your eyes have some of the thinnest skin on your entire body. Thin skin is more likely to experience fine line and wrinkles so make sure you treat this delicate area with special care is a must.
After cleansing and before applying any other product, you’ll want to apply a powerful eye serum packed with soothing anti-oxidants like Milk Thistle and Peppermint to support the reduction of puffiness and inflammation. Our Eye Recovery Serum is perfect for your eye area and is also formulated with NAD+ and Aldavine™ which have been scientifically proven to help tone and firm your undereye area to stop bags, dark circles, and wrinkles. It will also help prevent new wrinkles from forming around your eyes from pressing your face into the pillow as you sleep.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the most nourished skin of all? Not you if you don’t start prioritizing your nighttime moisturizing routine!!!! Before bed is the perfect time to slather on your favorite anti-aging moisturizing cream because it has a makeup-free canvas that allows the important ingredients to penetrate deep and provide real results you can see and feel.
Nighttime is also when your skin has the ability to heal so packing it full of important skin nutrients is very important before bed. In our best-selling Repair & Release Cream, we utilize ingredients like Proage and Matrixyl Synth 6 which are peptides that mimic the results of botox and fillers. They reduce wrinkle depth, plump skin, and deeply hydrated so that you can wake up with hydrated skin, fewer wrinkles, and a stunning glow!
